Centrally located beautiful sun filled upper level duplex. Approximately one mile from downtown, hospitals and one mile from Washington Park. Rent INCLUDES: gas, water, sewer, garbage, recycling and partial electric. Additionally the yard is cared for by us, so you have all the benefits of a large yard but no expense/responsibility. We are currently repainting the entire apartment. The colors will be bright accents with grays as the neutral. Kitchen is getting a new stove and microwave oven, adding an 8ft counter and more storage. Washer/ dryer in basement shared with downstairs tenant, we pay the electricity for common areas so no additional costs for laundry. The only additional cost you will have upon living here is electricity for your unit and that averages between $60-$100 per month, depending on your usage. This is a huge apartment with large rooms and plenty of storage. Living Room is 21 x 13, with a 4 x 5 bump out. Dining Room is 13 x 14. Bedrooms are both about 12 x 13. My husband and I live next door and are readily accessible, he does all the maintenance on the building and repairs, if needed, would be done almost immediately. The duplex shares an acre of land with the home we live in. We put in a large garden every year and tenants are welcome to help with the garden or just enjoy the veggies and the land. :) The yard is very beautiful by March(April this year), with hundreds of tulips popping up everywhere. We have a pear tree, two peach trees, a cherry tree and a couple of young apple trees. Blackberries, raspberries and strawberries grow every year. We have a large compost set up, and provide recycling for our tenants. There's a chicken coop at the far back of the yard so plenty of fresh eggs are always available. We love animals so most pets would be ok. We have 2 very friendly dogs and another tenant also has a friendly dog, plus a few assorted cats...so would mostly just need to check compatibility. The yard is only partially fenced. Stop by and take a look, showings can be held pretty much anytime.This unit is available Starting April 1st, a year lease is preferred, but shorter terms are possible. Deposit required is $1000.00.
